Former GM, BMW, Ford, and Chrysler employee gives Bob Lutz more knowledge about the auto industry than pretty much anyone else.

That is why Lotus hired Lutz and former BMW/Rolls-Royce CEO Tom Purves, as part of an advisory board to Lotus.

I met up with Bob Lutz at the 2010 Los Angeles auto show.

Who owns Lotus?

Will they be using turbo direct-injection? Will Lotus be bringing out hybrids?

Why is Lotus bringing out so many new models at once?
